More designers are going bold—and new products make it easy to inject great color.

Pro-style appliance-maker Blue Star is celebrating Greenery, Pantone's color of the year, by offering the zesty yellow-green hue on its ranges, hoods, and refrigerators. You can create a stunning focal point in the kitchen—or add just a hit of color with green range knobs.

Artistic Tile is bringing on the blue with Scales, a classic fish-scale pattern cut from glass in a petite size and contemporary colorways. 

Even dishwashers are getting in on the color act. Thermador has enhanced its Star Sapphire Dishwasher with Star Glow, which gives entertaining-minded hosts the options of different mood lighting to illuminate the interior—including this gorgeous blue. Bonus: You also get a new third rack and a special wineglass caddy.

Walker Zanger has expanded its 6th Avenue collection to include a Lemongrass glaze, shown here on Sofia mosaic tile. It's a great way to give an accent wall or backsplash a dose of sunny attitude.  

Smeg, known for its colorful retro-inspired refrigerators, has unveiled a prototype of its new Portofino Range, a 36-inch dual-fuel, freestanding range that comes in this vibrant yellow hue. The range is also available in olive green, orange, red, white, stainless steel, and black.

Bring your favorite piece of the rainbow to your kitchen sink with one of the Essence Semi-Pro faucets by Grohe. The faucet operates with a 360-degree turnable spring for a fully rotating spray arm and features a powerful magnet to guarantee seamless docking after use. It's available with interchangeable rainbow hoses and three neutral hose colors, matte sheer marble, matte dark gray, and velvet matte black.
